My dad had an old CD disc that ran the original Max Payne game, i only saw how the game looked like and remembered the music. Only the music was what i knew about it and its slow-motion bullet-time style gameplay. Years have passed, i grew older, blah blah... i got interested what was behind all that. And i was blown away.
I love the game from start to finish, i take the game with my, whereever i go... Litterly! I got this USB-stick as a key-chain and inside it is the game. I love Sam Lake's masterpiece of a game in many ways, the story, the character, the way it reflects life and how it makes you think about life itself. Ofcourse, i knew that there was another game, so my second quest began....
I loved that game also, for the same reasons... The only thing i did not like, was the fact that they didn't use Sam Lake's face for Max Payne anymore, but that aint a problem. I remember mona singing in the shower, singing "Late Goodbye" but i didn't know it was a real song of an awesome band. I noticed that the cleaner sang the same song, which was hillarious but not an accident. I loved the piano version of the song too (hell, i can play it in real life!) but it didn't really bother me too much. Game done, roll the credits.... except i was using a mod while playing the game called Payne Effects 3... which removed the credits so i could hear the full version of the song.
How do i know about "Late Goodbye" and POTF? Thank the lord for Wikia's.
I was checking out a wikia of Max Payne and read that in the second game there was a song that was sorta the main theme of the game. I was shocked, and quickly searched the title of the song and the artist and i was blown away.
I love the genre of the music, the lyrics, the singing.... Just brilliant. Quickly searched for more songs and i became a fan in an instant.
Currently my favorite songs are "Late Goodbye", "Fire", "Sorry A'Round", "Illusion and Dream" and "Locking up the sun". But my alltime favorite is "Someone Special". It makes me feel happy and glad about my life.
Ya still reading? Give yourself 10 extra life points and a meet 'n greet with POTF. Rofl.
Keep up the awesome music guys. Peace
